Romney Doesn't Want to be Secretary of State This Badly, Does He?

Romney Doesn't Want to be Secretary of State This Badly, Does He?

Mr. Romney as secretary of state would give the Trump administration something it now lacks: global respect. Trump insiders anonymously told The Daily Mail that they may demand an apology from Romney. This is not an argument over whether it would be better to choose an experienced foreign policy hand or to pick a political ally, but rather it is a fight over which unqualified individual with no foreign policy experience to speak of should get the job.

Romney, who met Trump in a highly publicised visit to the president-elect's golf club resort in New Jersey last week, has been quiet about his intentions, but, noticeably, he has not said he is not interested or has declined it.

Unlike Mr. Trump, who has shown a tendency to react emotionally to even minor issues, Mr. Romney, is calm, even diplomatic, and would be comfortable and professional in dealings with global leaders.

Some also believe that Trump is leaning toward selecting former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani for the coveted position.

As families across a bitterly divided America gathered for Thanksgiving Day, a battle erupted in President-elect Donald Trump's camp over his pick for secretary of state, with loyalists seeking to block the path of Mr Mitt Romney, a fierce former critic of the billionaire.

Both Romney and Giuliani have made their interest in the job known to Trump.

After reiterating that Trump's business practices lean on dishonesty, the President-elect has fired back by calling Romney a futile candidate who simply wanted his endorsement.

According to Fox News' Ed Henry, President-elect Donald Trump may make things a little more hard for Mitt Romney if he hopes to become our nation's next Secretary of State.

"I think the vast majority of Trump supporters will initially be very unhappy and will be reminded of the things Romney said", Gingrich said. The Donald fired back at the former MA governor, saying he would have been so lucky to get a Trump endorsement in 2012.

Conway told CNN that she was not trying to send a message to Trump, but did say there was concern about Romney.

"If ever there were a rarer pair - think Doberman and Labradoodle - I can't think of one", she wrote. Romney has earlier branded Trump as a "fraud" and "phony" Republican presidential candidate.

"I can think of 20 other people who would be more naturally compatible with the Trump vision of foreign policy", Gingrich added during a Fox News interview Tuesday night.

President-elect Donald Trump's consideration of Mitt Romney as secretary of State is a surprise, but it's a welcome surprise. Corker voted for the passage of the Iran nuclear deal past year and was a key player in the 2013 comprehensive immigration bill that passed in the Senate - two pieces of legislation that were hugely unpopular with Mr. Trump and his supporters.

Privately, Giuliani has expressed his frustration at going from front-runner for secretary of state to a contender who has to convince Trump of his strengths.
